The Silver Spring, Takoma and Brookland stations will be closed all weekend, and the Fort Totten station will be open for Green and Yellow lines only, Metro reported.
Red Line trains will operate as follows, Metro reported:
- Between Shady Grove and Rhode Island Avenue: Every 10 minutes between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. and at regular weekend intervals at other times.
- Between Glenmont and Forest Glen: Every 10 minutes between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. and at regular weekend intervals at other times.
The free shuttle buses running between Forest Glen and Rhode Island Avenue will operate on two routes, Metro reported:
- Limited stop buses will operate between Forest Glen and Rhode Island Avenue with a single intermediate stop at Silver Spring. Allow 12 minutes of travel time between Forest Glen and Silver Spring, and allow 25 minutes of travel time between Silver Spring and Rhode Island Avenue.
- Local buses will operate between Forest Glen and Rhode Island Avenue, making stops at all intermediate stations (Silver Spring, Takoma, Fort Totten, Brookland). Allow 10 minutes of travel time for each station stop. For example, a rider traveling between Silver Spring and Fort Totten should allow 20 minutes of travel time, because the bus makes two stops.
While the stations are closed, work "crews will make improvements to third-rail infrastructure, install cable for Emergency Trip Stations, perform concrete repair work and continue platform reconstruction," Metro reported.
